It may well be that a fine-grained interface isn't practical, but
perhaps there are some basics that we could implement, such as

Group is problematic; I don't recall Windows having group ownership (as distinct from group ACLs), and AFS PTS groups are very different from Unix groups.

As I said, I'm all in favor of such an API, just skeptical that a useful one can be devised.
